\"Valves  are  components  used  to  control  the transfer   of   liquids   and   gases   through   fluid piping  systems.  Most  valves  have  moving  joints between  the  valve  stem  and  the  bonnet.  When fluid  is  on  one  or  both  sides  of  a  moving  joint, the joint may leak. Sealing the joint prevents this leakage.   Sealing   a   moving   joint   presents   a problem  because  the  seal  must  be  tight  enough to  prevent  leakage,  yet  loose  enough  to  let  the valve stem turn without binding. Packing is the most common method of sealing a moving joint\"
